Springwatch is back - yay!

Did anyone else watch last night? We badgers were the stars of the show! I can't wait to find out if they'll show up again on tonight's show.

I'm going to keep an eye on the webcams to see what happens during the day. Looks like the redstart chicks won't be there for long!

Thank you for the kind offers everyone - managed to get that thorn out in the end and I feel much better. It got me thinking about hedgehogs though, and I found this awesome game!

It's by the Devon Wildlife Trust and it's all about hedgehogs. You have to help Harry the Hedgehog avoid dangers in the garden and find the things he needs. I've learned loads of things I didn't know about them.

I love the music too!

Ouch!

That'll teach me to go snuffling about in the undergrowth without looking where I'm going. I just stuck my nose straight into a hidden bramble patch and jabbed it on a thorn. I feel like I've just wrestled with a hedgehog!

Can anyone help me pull out the splinter? My poor, sensitive little nose!

Hi everyone - are you enjoying some time off school at the moment? We badgers are lucky because we don't have to go, but my friend Solar is loving the chance to spend some time outdoors.

He came visit my sett the other day and brought this photograph with him. He wasn't sure what it was so we asked Beebee about it. It's called a lily beetle and likes to munch gardener's plants.

I think it's got a naughty look on its on its face! What do you think we should name it? Solar suggested 'Nibbler' but I'm voting for 'The Destroyer'. Anyone got any other ideas?

Guess what I've been snuffling today? Hedgehog poo!

I know humans don't really like looking at poo very much (apart from Chris Packham of course), but I think it's really interesting. Not only does it mean that the hedgehogs near me are out and about again, but I could also have a good look at what they've been eating for lunch!

No shiny beetle bits in there yet - maybe it needs to get a bit warmer before there's lots of them around to eat? I'll report back if I discover any more interesting piles.
